100,000 Hits By The Numbers

July 5, 2012

Earlier this week, my blog received its 100,000th hit, a proud milestone. Here’s a breakdown of the blog’s what, when, where and how of those 100,000 hits.

The What (They Viewed)

The Inspiration post was featured on the front page of, creating an explosion of interest in that post, and my blog in general. The measly three hits for Interview on It was published just last week, so the low number isn’t completely surprising.

The When (They Visited)

  • 5378 – Hits on most popular day (May 15, 2011)
  • 20,622 – Hits in most popular month (May 2011)
  • 182 – Hits in same month one year earlier (May 2010)
  • 4866 – Average hits per month in first half of 2012

11,330% increase in hits from May 2010 to May 2011? Awesome. And the steady stream of 4000-5000 monthly hits the blog gets now isn’t too shabby.

The Where (They Viewed It From)

  • Top five countries of origin: United States (69.6%), Canada (6.6%), United Kingdom (2.8%), France (1.1%), Germany (1.1%)
  • Countries with less than .01% share of viewership: Bahrain, Belize, Bolivia, Brunei Darussalam, Côte d’Ivoire, Fiji, Ghana, Honduras, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritius, Moldova, Mongolia, Namibia, Netherlands Antilles, Oman, Qatar, Rwanda, Syria, Turks and Caicos, Tanzania, Vatican City, and Zimbabwe.
  • Country of origin for 100,000th hit: Australia

Really? Vatican City? 0.17 square miles? Population 800? I wonder if the Pope has seen my blog.

The How (They Found It)

The five most common search terms:

  • madison square garden wwe (603 times)
  • jacey lambros (576 times)
  • rockettes (504 times)
  • landry fields (464 times)

Who is searching for “rochkreettes today?” And how is that leading to my blog? I want answers!
